Award Winning Architect’s Unique Home on Market

Award Winning Architect’s Unique Home on Market

22 December 2006

One of Cambridge’s most spectacular homes has just come on to the market, complete with elevated views of the countryside and 21.3 hectares of mature native bush and bush life on its back door.

Designed by multi-award winning Keiser Architecture, the one-off uniquely styled home on 345 Maungakawa Road, Cambridge, is being marketed by Philip Coles and Sara Bryers from Harcourts Cambridge for $1.68 million. “It is very private and there is nothing around like this. This would have to be the most significant and outstanding home in the area,” said Mr Coles.

Built in 2001, this national award winning contemporary home includes expansive glazed sliding walls up to 3.6m high opening to decks providing panoramic views of the native bush and Waikato basin. As well as its own bush which was extensively tracked, the property adjoined the Maungakawa Scenic Reserve which is one of New Zealand’s top ecological conservation areas.

Since the initial marketing began a fortnight ago, Mr Coles reported very strong interest with over 20 genuine viewing groups going through the property.

He added that as well as the home, people were very impressed with the Cambridge area as a whole which included a very attractive and quaint town and the nearby world-class rowing lake, Karapiro. As a result, increasing numbers of city dwellers and UK buyers seeking a high quality picturesque rural lifestyle and grand designer homes were becoming more prevalent.
